Everyone Wins With Pay Per Head
Joining a pay-per-head (PPH) service as a new bookie is a win-win situation for everyone.
Let’s be honest, the majority of us couldn’t open a sportsbook without PPH shops. You would need to develop a software to handle the back-end, plus hundreds of other tasks.
There’s only so much time in the day and outsourcing the majority of the daily tasks by using a PPH service not only makes sense, but it’s likely the only way you’ll be able to open a betting business.
PPH shops aren’t in competition with you. They have the software and workforce to keep the odds and platform functional as well as provide support and accept/grade wagers. You have players looking to wager on sports and you need the software, odds and support to run your business.
Pay per head services are looking to solely make a flat fee from the bookie owner. You pay a small weekly fee for each of your active players and the rest of the profit is yours to keep.
You handle all of the money however you want when you use a PPH service. They don’t handle the money at all, which means you never need to worry about losing your money. This is also why it’s important to join an established pay per head business that isn’t going to close shop.
Benefits of Joining a Pay Per Head Service
PPH shops allow the bookie to essentially automate his business. You will have a website where your players can log-in and place bets 24/7. Bets are graded automatically in the back-end. The odds for every market are updated 24/7 to ensure you’re not throwing out a stale line and much more.

There are tons of benefits to utilizing a pay per head solution as a bookie owner and is basically a requirement to run a bookie because setting everything up on your own would cost a ton.
I’ve explained why pay per head services a win-win solution. Now the next step is finding a service that values your business and offers a product that can compete with all competitors.
